. >> the other rate remains unchanged from august. >> heather: doug, thank you. >> gregg: the price of a gallon of gasoline hitting an all time high in the state of california. according to aaa the average price for a gallon of regular in the golden state, 4.65 a gallon. that is up four cents from just yesterday. drivers in need of some help at the pump. >> i have nv seen this near this. >> it has gone up 52 cents. >> we had a refinery owned by exxon that had a power outage. >> they say temporary reduction in supply is giving the state the most expensive gasoline in the nation. >>> a dramatic jump of the cases of fungal meningitis outrage. according to cdc, 7 people are dead. now 91 cases in nine different states linked to contaminated steroid injections commonly used to treat back pain. elizabeth pran has more on it. >> reporter: those new numbers released, 19 cases. the cases are mostly in the state of michigan where 15 people have contracted the disease, seven more in virginia. a total of died in tennessee, michigan, maryland and virginia in just the last week. health experts say those peopl
it to be presidential? a fair and balanced debate on that. monica, doug schoen, coming up. >> they have been unable to lay out a agenda to what to do to help america. they have been unable to defend and describe what they do to get our economy going again. that is with a president out of ideas and out of excuses, november 6th, you can make sure you put him out of office. [cheers and applause] bill: fox news has obtained more internal e-mails. this one sent by the state department to members of the obama administration. now this document describes an attack on a shelter about a mile away from the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, under mortar attack. here is secretary of state hillary clinton downplaying some of those e-mails a bit yesterday at the state department. >> you know, posting something on facebook is not in and of itself evidence and i think it just underscores how fluid the reporting was at the time and continued for some time to be. bill: senator john mccain is one of three members of the senate who just sent a letter to the white house asking for more questions. member of the senate a
. doug schoen a democratic strategist, fox news contributor. and also a republican strategist is joining us from the american enterprise institute. doug, vice president biden last week talking about the fact that we basically have unemployment, things are getting better. the president has to address that tonight. >> it is undeniably the case that it is better to be 7.8 than 8. but when you look at discouraged workers, underemployed and unemployed workers this is still a very very weak economy and the administration has yet to come up with a compelling defense of a record that leaves them deeply politically vulnerable tonight. cheryl: i think you gave mark's argument for him. >> i often agree with doug. cheryl: obviously, okay. >> i often agree with doug, and i do agree with him right now. vice president biden was gloating in the debate last week that after 43 months we got it down to 7.8%. but the fact is if you count all the workers who left the workforce, the unemployment rate is really closer to 11%. as you have pointed out, we have had 43 months of this high unemployment. that really
island new york. doug mckelway is in delaware. we begin with rick leventhal at point pleasant beach, new jersey. good evening, rick. >> bret, the wind is ridiculous at this hour. at #:00, i clock wind gust at 57 miles per hour. it feels like it's 70 to 80 now. i'm hanging on the rail or i probably, well, you can see the street. the ocean is merging with the ocean avenue. if you look to the left, not sure if you can tell how ferocious the winds are. they're in the 12 to 15 to 20-foot range. at times curling and crashing over the dunes to bring water to point pleasant. this town was evacuated yesterday. most of the residents heeded warnings. all of the beach communities up and down the new jersey shore were evacuated. some people chose not to leave. that included atlantic city, new jersey, where a section of the boardwalk washed away. emergency workers were rescuing some residents with light boats and -- lifeboats and high water vehicles throughout the day. at this point, the governor told people if you are still home, don't try to get out. hunker dune try to ride the storm out. the storm
of a concern for them. let's debate this doug schoen, former pollster for president clinton. monica crowley, radio talk show host. both are fox news contributors. good morning to you. let me show the poll one more time. 67% say it is troubling the first initial erroneous reports came out of the administration. 26% say not much of a concern. doug, is this an issue in the presidential election? >> absolutely it is a issue. when something is troubling it is not full voting issue. but the bottom line as we go into the vice-presidential debate and two presidential debates coming in the next two weeks, this is a huge concern for the obama white house, make no mistake and they're going to try to keep a troubling concern, troubling not totally political. not have it dominate the election. alisyn, most of all, not have it take over the final days of the campaign in a way that could be calamitous for the election. alisyn: monica, do you agree with doug, when people go into the voting booth, are they thinking about benghazi or thinking about their jobs and their gas tanks? >> obviously jobs and the ec
. doug, let me start with you. this stood out to me last night that independent voters liked that when he talked about cutting tacks for the middle class. obviously the obama administration takes issue with it and says it isn't true. do you think this could be enough, if mitt romney could make the case for him to win the election? >> i think it's a very important point. remember why he wants to have the tax reform he wants. it's to make sure that the united states grows better than we've seen in the past four years. and what mr. romney is trying to say is, look, we have all these people out of work. we have all these people with jobs whose incomes are not growing. let's lower rates, broaden the base, be respectful of the middle class and the deficit by but have a better tax policy in place. it's good positions for him. the president can't even get the first step right. instead of lowering rates and broadening the base, he is insisting on raising taxes. that's a bit of a tough sell right now. it was the same president who, in 2010, said we can't afford to raise taxes on anyone. the economy
area have left food inspectors a difficult task keeping the public save. doug sovern is heading up the latest investigation called watching what you eat. the ratio of these inspectors in the restaurants is crazy. >> reporter: we looked at three counties, san francisco, santa clara and alameda counties. 36,000 restaurants in the counties and only 100 inspectors. think about that. hundreds of restaurants each and for the food trucks there are even more food trucks than a year or two ago 350 food trucks per county. they have one inspector in each county to check all these food trucks. >> so it's impossible really to go to every restaurant and key an eye on it. >> it's not impossible. but it's difficult. they said, we went out in the field with them. they are overwhelmed, understaffed, begging for help. each has to cover hundreds of restaurants a year. they will inspect them once or twice a year. it's difficult to keep up. >> there's been some restaurants here in the city prominent ones that have been shut down for a number of reasons. >> they have closed nine restaurants in san franci
the treasury. we haven't gotten them yet. last week the cbo did tell us expect $1.1 trillion deficit which doug, was improvement from last year. which was 1.3 trillion. what is the splin politically? >> there is not much to spin here. the budget gotten better because largely the economy improved somewhat compared to 2009. to argue this is good news story because the economy is doing well is tough place to end up. the real difficulty is going to be honest with the american people about the numbers and explain you can't close it all with taxes on high income americans. i thought that was handled well last night. for the administration they simply have to say, gee we inherited a bad situation. we promise we'll take care of it in the next four years. obviously they have the promise of first four years hanging over them. they're in a tough spot. lori: what do you think how voters general public, anyone in particular, this idea of romney's idea that the, not only the federal budget deficit but the national debt in and of itself a moral issue. are people buying into that? >> for a long, long time the
, former spokesman for the democratic congressional campaign committee doug foreign nell and from the now romney superpack. so we could really walk out on the house debate. ann i want to put up our top ten markets, these are the most saturated ad markets for the eighth through the 14th. norfolk, cleveland, florida, virginia plus ro colorado. flohva and then colorado, iowa, wisconsin those are the six. >> this is the map, this is the place that we all want to visit and the people there probably want to flee by now. we have known this map from the outset and the map hasn't changed. that's one of the interesting things. despite all the ups and downs, we are in this same map. >> that is an interesting point that, is that a yellow flag for romney? he's doing well, everything's popped for him. but you know the map hasn't changed. >> but the map has gotten better. before the debate, we saw it tight. si since the debate, he's not within the margin of error, he's going to be up. i think going into the 12re67, he's exactly where he needs to be. >> you're not concerned that the maps never really exp
. there are concerns that some of the money would be going some place else. correspondent doug mckelway has the story from gulf shores, alabama. >> reporter: two years since the worst ecological disaster, the beaches are now pristine. some say the politics of the clean-up are not. >> chicago style politics at its worst. >> closed door negotiations undergo in washington between the governor of five gulf states justice department and b.p. oil to determine how much b.p. should be fined for damage. fines will be immense ranging from $4 billion to more than $20 million. last june, congress passed restore act to require 80% of the money be allotted by the local officials. >> devastating. we were closed for the summer of 2010. which is our year. we are a seasonal destination. we had just come off a major hurricane from building bubble bursting, came off the banking crisis and financial crisis. we were broke. >> sources close to the talks tell fox news justice department negotiators are ignoring the restore act and instead negotiating to steer the fines through nrda, the natural resources daniel assessment,
a great panel to talk about this. mark sanford is the former governor of south carolina. doug schoen is a former pollster to bill clinton, and monica crowley is a fox news contributor. here is a central issue to this. this $716 billion that they claim a president romney would cut from the program, and romney says, look, you're already doing it as part of your obamacare program, you've already taken that money, but you've taken it from people who are using medicare right now. governor sanford? >> well, let's first off recognize the truth in terms of numbers. it's not a cut when you think about a cut in your family budget, like i had a hundred dollars and now i'm going to have 80. this is a cut over the next ten years in the rate of increase in medicare. first of all i think it's important to get our arms around what we're really talking about. both camps are guilty of whatever this $700 billion cut is, again cut in the increase in medicare and both are ignoring the larger issue of an unsustainable system. you're looking at a 30 trillion liability with medicare overall, you're looking
11th this year. doug mckelway joins me live in washington on this. doug, is this the first witness we're going to hear from here? >> reporter: the first witness actually gone on the record, not a anonymous source. a guy came forward to say security was denied there. he is lieutenant colonel andrew word, former head of a special forces team in libya. he told cbs news that his request for beefed up security was rejected in washington. the man who made the call to reject the extra security, undersecretary of state management, patrick kennedy who held the job since 2007. after the attack kennedy privately briefed house and senate staffers told them the attack appeared to be sophisticated involving light and heavy weapons. four days after that briefing, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice took to five different sunday talk shows to say it was not a planned attack. it was another three days after that, before any senior u.s. official publicly stated that the benghazi incident was indeed a terrorist attack. >> americans deserve the truth on what happened. and so i think what you're going
-eakin is joining us what's the political impact do you think doug of this right before the election? you know, big voting block and not getting a very big increase in their check monthly, or is there an impact? >> well, the seniors have regularly come to expect an increase in their social security benefit. you step back and ask yourself why that would happen, it is because it's indexed to inflation, the fact we have very low inflation leads to very low increases in social security benefits, but to the extent that they look at that check or the check they will likely get in january and they are dissatisfied, they are likely to point to the incumbent and say gee this isn't any good, let's try the next guy. connell: not to get sidetracked a little bit, but you mentioned there no inflation and that's why we don't see the increase, i was thinking the conversation dagen had with peter schiff and that was about how voters do see inflation as a big concern. dagen was speculating that's probably mostly because of gas prices. it is kind of funny to see the two, the biggest concern voters have on the one han
have doug talking about strategic misjudgments, sort of doug's middle game name. >> that's a long middle name. >> it's wordy but he can fairly tie him into this whole crew that's basically his same foreign policy advisers, right? >> he can. and we will talk a little -- in a second about the president's foreign policy. melissa, in terms of how the debate has played out this week, after the first debate it was, you know, self- -- the president's self-emulated, romney won hands down. a collective sense that the president had done significantly better, maybe not the rolled down gates pulled down over the romney gates many hoped. peggy noonan writes that -- what do you make of that? is the president not winning the post-debate week? >> he's president. so that means that his role as the president, as the person actually governing, is always going to overshadow sort of whether it's the playfulness of the al smith dinner or the performative aspects of the debate. let me be clear i think that's good. you know, maybe it's not good at this particular moment for this particular campaign, but
. megyn: this is totally horrifying. way to bring the room down. we were feeling so great after doug's visit. reporter: i can't wait for the book, by the way. also, so dapper and good-looking. megyn: i'm a little biased on that. i think so. coming up, philadelphia police officers fired after he caught on camera sucker punching a woman in the face. leading her away in handcuffs. now, his union is fighting his dismissal. that is on the docket in today's "kelly's court." and the deadly outbreak of a rare form of meningitis is growing. we will have the latest. and questions about helpful journalists are costing to offer president obama debate advice. we have our next guest coming up live i'm barack obama, and i approve this message. these appliances could have been made here in america. but a company called global tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing... under sweatshop conditions in china. when mitt romney led bain, they saw global tech as a good investment... even knowing that the firm promoted its practice of exploiting... low-wage labor to its investors. mitt r
. megyn: doug schoen is a former adviser for president clinton and pat caddell for president carter. >> this comes from the top. they regroup the obama campaign after the debate, a disastrous debate by all polls and all accounts and they decide they had to go back to a narrative which has worked, the most virulent attacks on governor romney, attack him as a felon, criminal, murderer, it worked. they were ahead while he were doing it. they have 29 days left. the bottom line, it worked then, call him a liar and it will get the president-elected. megyn: he has been attacked as a possible felon by the obama campaign and priorities u.s.a. as a murderer responsible for the death of a man's wife. and it was a lie. is this an effective campaign strategy? tight worked in the past because romney hasn't been on the stage. the problem is 70 million americans saw a debate. they could see for 90 minutes and make a judgment about governor romney and the president and they made a judgment. let me tell you the other problem the president's campaign has. this is coming from the top, which is this dis
's where malarkey came in. doug mcelway is live in washington. we have our own fact checkers. i would never use that word on any of your reports. >> so i can state for the record i didn't do the fact checking, that would be malarkey. it was our brain room that did the fact checking from last night. last night's debate focused heavily on entitlements prompting paul ryan to attack obamacare for costing harm to seniors who use medicare advantage. >> 7.4 million seniors are projected to lose the medicare advantage coverage they have, that is a $3,200 medicare cut. >> true or you false? it is true. they wrote, quote, we estimate in 2017 when the medicare advantage provisions will be fully phased in enrollment in medicare advantage plans will be lower by about 50% from it's projected level of 14.8 million under the prior law to 7.4 million under the new law. all right. moving along now. another statement to fact check from paul ryan regarding this often repeated romney campaign contention that obamacare takes $716 billion away from medicare. listen up. >> obama care takes $716 billion from medica
maker that got some 250 million tax dollars is filing for bankruptcy. and doug mcelway has more for us from washington on this. >> reporter: the name of the company is a123, a waltham, massachusetts outfit that specializes in lithium ion batteries. it built three plants in 2010 to take advantage of the state's huge tax breaks for battery manufacturers. vice president joe biden hailed the $249 million tax grant to the company. he said with recovery act projects like this we are starting to turn the page on a decade of failed economic policies, end quote. president obama phoned the company at a 2010 celebration. >> i am calling to congratulate a123 systems on this tremendous milestone. as you said thanks to the recovery act, you guys are the first american factory to start high volume production of advanced vehicle batteries. i met with david and some of the a123 team here in the white house back in april, and it's incredibly exciting to see ho*uf you guys have come since we announced these grants just over a year ago. >> reporter: despite hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer supp
the affects of the healthcare law. doug abg elway live i abg mcelway live in washington with more on this. >> reporter: quite a contention by issa that this demonstration project is being used to buy the election. here is why issa believes that. the obama administration and hhs through $8.35 billion into this medicare advantage demonstration project. that money has the os sentencible affect of postponing the first round of cuts to medicare advantage that obamacare would impose. is it really a demonstration project? it's costing more than the combined 85 previous demonstration projects before it. in effect propping up medicare advantage, issa contends, so seniors won't see the cuts coming to it. keep in mind that a center piece of the romney campaign is that obamacare imposes $716 billion in cuts to medicare. >> what's important about this is the money they are taking, they are taking out of nowhere. this is not appropriated money, this is money that bypasses congress and just allows secretary sebelius, by calling this what she is calling this to spend $8.3 billion to basically buy an elec
showed up on the imus show to discuss doug's new book. i promise there are no dull moments. the thing that shocked me about the book. when you hear doug talk about it, when they do what they are designed to do. the incentives that drive them. you do spa split screen of me saying here, strippers, drugs and they are married. megyn: meteorologist janice dean tells us hurricane sandy could turn into the next perfect storm. it's on course to hit the united states next week. it already turned deadly. our script said frankenstorm. that didn't sound good. we saw one of those storms in 1991. an unlikely set of circumstances could turn sandy into the case scenario. >> reporter: this is from noaa. it says we don't have many modern precedents for what the models are suggesting. there have been comparisons to the perfect storm in 1991 called the halloween nor'easter. it hit october 28 and lasted until november 4. that's the time frame of this storm. it spawned average waves of 50 feet. in some places 100 feet. that's when the andrea gail sunk inspiring the movie called "the perfect storm." i want
rollins this was like being trapped in a bar next to a no it all drunk. doug schoen said biden was passionate, substantive, paul ryan was competent at best and no more. that's how the left sees it. >> i respectfully disagree with doug who is an astute person but more to the center than left. if you were trying to figure out who paul ryan was you came away with a very good impress. if you're looking at joe biden and trying to get substance, really it's intelligence community's fault? at one point he tried to suggest that it was paul ryan's fault that there was not adequate security in benghazi. my personal favorite last night was he said, he said, you no, the war in afghanistan and iraq, i voted against them. i stood up and said, you know, we can't afford it. well, wait a minute you voted for the authorization of the use of force resolution to go into afghanistan in 2001 and you voted for the iraq war resolution. a whole series of questions were passed over by the media generally. talking points assert things that were not true and occasionally stumble into land miness that you

at a conference in 2010. doug mckelway is following it arrive in washington. doug? >> gregg, one of the features of that conference in orlando last year was the presentation of a parody film, a takeoff on the classic "patton." it was designed to motivate va employees. here's a snippet of the film. >> one of the worse mistakes you can make in carrying out your mission is getting the idea in your head that stability is a virtue. stability is not a virtue, it's a trap. it means you're holding your own, you're standing still. >> reporter: the film goes on with interviews of va employees and beneficiaries. it cost $52,000 to produce that little 15-minute film. it was shown only twice. yet that price tag is only a fraction of the cost of the overall conference. the va billed taxpayers over $5 million for the conference, that's more than five times what that notorious xsa conference -- gsa conference in vegas cost. what's more, just as with the gsa, the va inspect general's report found investigators were lousy at keeping track of their expenses. quote: >> reporter: a day before this damaging ig report
years, so it's really an audition for mitt romney in front of 50 million american people. >> doug, you have watched many of these. you have analyzed many of these rsh you are calling this one historical. a historical event. why? >> because we're in this weeshd cycle here where barack obama is a president with over 8% unemployment. usually that means you lose, but mitt romney has run a lackluster campaign, particularly in august and september. you are starting to see in the swing states barack obama pulling ahead in virtually all of the polls, and if he comes and gets any more momentum, he has the momentum right now, obama, and he doesn't get stopped at all, then it could be a break-out for the president. on the other hand, mitt romney tonight is such an underdog, people don't think he is that fantastic of debater. they're underestimating him. he is quite good. he comes and seeming to have parody with the president and maybe get that zinger they're rehearsing so hard, get one in that works and hits this youtube media cycle playing over and over again. romney could turn into the swing st
by the taliban. doug is live in dc with the preview of what he's going to say today. doug? >> good morning. this is the romney campaign trying to set the agenda and be more aggressive, especially in the wake of the debate that a lot of people thought mitt romney won. look how close this race is getting. through four key swing states, all within the margin of error, little doubt as to why the romney campaign would choose this last one, virginia, to deliver this big foreign policy address today. romney is probably going to touch on the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya last month. he may get into the ongoing crisis in syria, iran's nuclear ambition u name it. there is also afghanistan with the war there now entering its 12th year and almost on cue, we're hearing from the taliban with new reports this morning that they are mocking u.s. foreign policy, saying u.s. and nato forces are preparing to flee afghanistan in disgrace. romney is expected to call the withdrawal of u.s. force has politically timed retreat. >> for the last four years, we've had a foreign policy led by a president who b
. doug mckelway is live at the white house with more on this. doug, we actually had a reporter from new hampshire this week say he really saw happen in the state of new hampshire. democrats really focusing on social issues. how is this turn working for the obama campaign? >> reporter: well, jenna, face it, the number one issue facing americans is the economy, but that is an issue upon which the president is very, very vulnerable. that is the reason, many analysts say, that the obama campaign is now turning to these social issues, and key among them, of course, is the so-called war on women. a linchpin of the so of called war on women is the right to abortion. it's one of the reasons that at that campaign rally at george may john university in suburban virginia, he has chosen to introduce him cecile richards of planned parenthood, and it is no coincidence she is also being featured in a new web ad released by the campaign today. here's a little bit of that. >> since day one president obama has stood with women. the very first bill he signed was the lily ledbetter fair pay act allowing us
